I didn't mean to leave you with a cliff hanger about our move! Cross my heart. I just usually aim to keep my posts on point or heaven knows I'll traipse through seventeen stories without trying.
(I do that in real life.)
Once it became clear that this move was happening, I needed a day to deal, too. It all came crashing down in my head...I realized I am going to have to deal with boxes of emotions. Boxes of saying goodbye to family + friends. Parting with all my pretty things. Returning keys to an apartment that's been the background to a pretty amazing 12 months. And then the box that will be the hardest: hugging my family, leaving my hometown of 25 years and getting on a 17 hour flight to a hot, dusty foreign country.
So for today, I'm simply speaking in statements...and dealing with emotions later. Mostly because any extended typing or talking about the subject is just going to result in tears. And it's Friday morning. Who really needs that?
So here it is: we are moving to Kuwait.
Also, our Kuwaiti apartment has salmon and taupe checkerboard floors.
Pass the coffee. And I won't tell anyone if you add some strong stuff. ;)
